obama won a decisive victory against john mccain among women by a whopping 13-point margin. among men, by a shriver. just a single point. there seemed there was no stopping women's political momentum until we ran smack-dab into 2010. and the tea party poured into congress. there wasn't just a full stop but more like a full reversal in women's political prospects. the 2010 mid-term year was the first time in more than 30 years that women not only failed to gain seats but actually lost seats in the house of representatives. the tea party's ideological take over of congress also brought with it a regressive social agenda, wrapped inside a trojan horse of economic reform that has left us where we find ourselves today, facing an unprecedented legislative erosion of reproductive rights at the state and federal level. we find ourselves almost unable to go a week without women being treated like children who can't be trusted to make sound decisions about our own lives and bodies. most recently, the misinformed manplaining about rape, health, and abortion. >> life is a gift from god, and i thi

was in the room along with john mccain when they were getting the reporting. this is p as bad as we can imagine it being. it was connifusing and complicated. he, like everyone else, found it confusing and tough. more than anything, part of what i am yearning for from the republicans, katon, is the sense of complexity. it is hard work. there is not one single policy that impacts such a complex economy. >> there is not one single party that is going to get it done. >> i think you just framed the election for me and a lot of other people. how big do we want our government to be? you talk about increasing jobs. how big of a government can we afford. >> if it is teachers, i would like it to be very big. >> i have my sister back home that would like that also. my point is, this is the choice america is making. how big of a government, not do we want but can which afford? that gets to a liberty versus conservative argument. policies and all this other stuff gets stuff in the weeds. do we want more government jobs? that becomes a real thing. >> you do. i'm sure i don't. i want more private

. john mccain had this to say about the outcome. >> a century ago, president three dore roosevelt's invitation of booker t washington to dine at the white house was taken as an outrage in many corridors. america today is a world away from the cruel and prideful bigotry of that time. there is no better evidence of this than the election of an african-american to the presidency of the united states. >> senator mccain was right. that at no other time in american history could this moment have been possible. and even as the opponent, he was a bit swept up in that moment. remember the front page of the new york times after the election, obama, racial barrier falls in decisive victory. the victory was decisive, but the barrier had not fallen. then senator obama was simply hoisted over it, propelled by decades of civil rights demonstrations. hard won legislative victories, educational opportunities and shifting racial boundaries. but senator mccain, "the new york times" and frankly many pundits writing in the heady moments of the victory failed to articulate how firmly the barriers remaine
